The Olympics are a big event because they
only happen every two years. The Summer Olympics, we think, are
better than the Winter Olympics. The sports in the summer are all
more fun to watch. For instance, the Olympic sport of bobsledding is
pretty boring to watch, because it goes fairly slow (80 mph). The
Summer Olympic events are all more action-packed. For example, the
track and field events all involve great skills. The diving is
another event that is fun to watch because the athletes do really
The Olympics gather the best athletes in the world. A lot of the athletes who dont have a chance to win are just happy to be there, knowing they are among the best athletes of their sport in the world. Thats what the Olympic Oath is for. An Olympic Oath is a pledge about being a good sport that each athlete recites before the Olympics.
The next Summer Olympics, in the year 2000, should be very exciting. Itll be in Sydney, Australia. We cant wait to watch, as all the world will be watching!
